ABC.



ABC

By Wislawa Szymborska

I’ll never find out now

What A. thought of me.

If B. ever forgave me in the end.

Why C. pretended everything was fine.

What part D. played in E.’s silence.

What F. had been expecting, if anything.

Why G. forgot when she knew perfectly well.

What H. had to hide.

What I. wanted to add.

If my being around
meant anything
to J. and K. and the rest of the alphabet.
